US school investigates picture of pupils 'playing Jews V Nazis drinking game'

Officials at a US high school are investigating a photo on social media showing students playing a "Jews V Nazis" drinking game.

The picture was shared on Snapchat, where one student at Princeton High School, New Jersey, wrote about it on her blog.

The photo appears to show students playing a version of the drinking game beer pong, dubbed "Holocaust Pong" or "Alcoholocaust".

A screenshot shows the students pouring beer into two sets of cups arranged in the forms of a Star of David and a swastika.

Steve Cochrane - superintendent at the high school, which is a few hundred yards from the prestigious Princeton University - said he was deeply upset over the students' choice to engage in a game with "clearly anti-Semitic" overtones.

He said school authorities are talking to the students and their families about the incident.
